The General Syndicate of Motors in Mecca pledged to pay the dues of 200 seasonal employees who were unable to work in Hajj.
The head of the Automobile Syndicate in Mecca, Abdul Rahman Al-Harbi, confirmed to Okaz the validity of the complaint filed by about 200 young Saudis against the General Syndicate of Cars, after they were denied the right to join seasonal jobs in Hajj as a “bus guide.”
Al-Harbi said: “The entitlements of the employees, whose housing conditions, the contractor and some licenses prevented them from working in the Hajj, will be deposited in their bank accounts with us before the 20th of Dhul-Hijjah, because it was the union fault and the Saudi youth who were waiting to start work.”
A number of young Saudis applied for employment after the General Syndicate of Cars announced seasonal jobs as a bus guide for a period of nine days, starting from 4 Dhul-Hijjah until 13 Dhu al-Hijjah, with salary 2000 riyals, including food.
The contracts were issued with them, and after they started work for two days, they were informed of the delay in issuing permits and cards, and they had to wait until they were contacted, only to be surprised, after a long wait, by depriving them of seasonal jobs that they had contracted and signed their contracts, without knowing the real reasons.
